As an office manager, I often feel the pressure of managing chaos and struggling to keep things running smoothly for my doctors. Since beginning our relationship with Acquios Advisors, I no longer feel that stress. Rick is my secret weapon! Working with Rick for the past five years has been the best investment we have made in our practice. It has provided me with the opportunity to better manage my responsibilities and focus my energy on being the leader my team needs. We are now operating more smoothly; we have increased our productivity, production and profitability; and I have a better understanding of how my office is running. Rick has been such a huge contributor to not just my professional growth, but also my personal growth. I can truly say that I love my job, and love what I do, thanks to Acquios Advisors.
Over the past year I have used Acquious Advisors to help me navigate a practice buyout. Everyone at Acquios was phenomenal. Rick was constantly there to offer me the guidance and support I needed during this time. I am a fairly recent graduate from optometry school, and taking the leap to practice owner was one that I really struggled with. Rick and the rest of the team ran detailed financials on the practice I was buying, and made me feel so much more comfortable moving ahead with the purchase. Not only did they help me complete the buyout, but they also helped with the transition. They walked me through everything from coming up with an employee handbook to having to fire an employee. Rick got to know me and my practice. I look to him not only as a trusted advisor, but also a friend. I would highly recommend Acquios Advisors to anyone looking for assistance in purchasing a practice or needing guidance in running their practice.
[Since 2013], I have had the privilege of working with Kirk as I start my own optometric practice. Kirk’s mentoring and knowledge of the field have been instrumental in my growth over this first year. He is very professional and maintains a positive attitude in stressful situations. I get asked all the time about the one thing that I would recommend to someone starting their own practice, and the first word out of my mouth is always a good consultant. Kirk has helped me build the team, materials and confidence I needed to make my practice a success.
I have worked with Kirk for more than 5 years. He has helped us place a real-time budget in place that has become the bible for any fiscal decisions we make for our practice. Kirk has made site visits to our office and has been helpful in organizing our staff to be more structured and productive. He has also been helpful in increasing staff morale. He’s quick to respond any time we have a question or concern and has been helpful in solving any problems that occur. He is very adept in all aspects of our optometric practice and has been very helpful in any management aspects. He has been a lifesaver.
I’m tremendously grateful for all that you have assisted me through. I know I wouldn’t have gotten this far without you. You’ve always listened to my concerns, and you’ve made such a positive impact for my family and me. Leaving my previous career for a possibly better life with a new practice was a huge, frightening step forward, and I wanted to thank you for having been there every step of the way.
